Reportase.one, Jakarta – Week 34 or final League 1 schedule will feature the Persija Jakarta vs PSS Sleman match. The two teams will face off at the Bung Karno Main Stadium (SUGBK), Senayan, Central Jakarta, Saturday, April 15 2023, starting at 20.30 WIB with broadcast Video.
Persija Jakarta wahib won to be able to finish as runner-up. They are only one point ahead of Persib Bandung below them and tonight will be against Persikabo 1973. The team that finished runners-up in League 1 this season will get a spot to compete in the 2023-2024 AFC Cup play-offs.
Persija coach, Thomas Doll, is still not satisfied with the performance of his team in the last match against Dewa United. According to him, the Kemayoran Tigers did not play well and often made unforced errors.
“We had a lot of opportunities, it’s a shame we couldn’t score even one goal,” he said. “We played uneasy, weren’t careful about the opponent’s counter-attacks, and often made the wrong decisions.”
“That makes the team’s rhythm worse. We shouldn’t have played like that.”
Playing at SUGBK will provide additional energy for Andritany Ardhiyasa and colleagues to get the last three points of the season.
Meanwhile, PSS Sleman as the guest team will come to be Persija’s nightmare. The squad nicknamed the Javanese Eagle is having a good mentality after successfully conquering Bali United before going to Jakarta with a score of 2-0.
“The victory in the match against Bali United was due to the will and motivation of the players,” said PSS Sleman coach, Seto Nurdiyantoro.
“Apart from that, the victory in the last home match of the season has quenched thirst throughout the course of the current competition which is not good,” he said again.
On the other hand, PSS wing striker Riki Dwi Saputra is ready to face the hosts Persija. He said his team’s preparation against Persija was optimal.
“Personally, I am ready for the match against Persija. I continue to make preparations, both from the physical, mental and psychological aspects,” said Riki. “My hope and target is to be able to play optimally, then be able to close the last match in League 1 with a win.”
